What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may contribute to inferior indoor air quality in your Kingston residence.

This includes:

  • Substances in carpeting, furniture and drapery that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, modern homes don’t have fresh air the way older homes do. Secure weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This offers increased energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can cause contaminants accumulating indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange contaminated indoor air for cleaner exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
